Raspbian Kodi VPN

Thu Jan 21, 2016 4:25 pm

Hi,
I have spent some time to get VPN and Kodi started at boot on Raspbian. Here's how I did it:

Created two .desktopfiles, one to get the VPN (Ipvanish) started, one to get Kodi started with a delay of 15 seconds. The delay appeared to be necessary.

Assuming the config files for the VPN ( http://brianhornsby.com/blog/how-to-set ... vpn-client ) are in /home/pi/vpn-config the VPN.desktop file contains:

{Desktop Entry]
Name=VPN
Type=Applications
Exec=sudo openvpn /home/pi/vpn-config/.....ovpn
Terminal=false

The Kode.desktop file contains:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Kodi
Type=Applications
Exec=kodi -d 15
Terminal=false

I created the .desktop files in /home/pi/Desktop

Finally you have to copy them into /home /pi/.config/autostart

which xbmc distro are you using? If it's Openelec then i doubt there is much you can do. Heres the guide for vpn deals.
